Engineer by degree, but I code for a living. Recently switched to using a tablet for leisure internet, like this site, but the on-screen keyboard is horrible, so please forgive my missing letters and things!

comment Is it necessary to heat honey when using it in cider?
Thanks for the mead making insight. I just dumped the commercial cider and commercial honey in a carboy and shook the heck out of it to get the honey dissolved (and to aerate). Then I put in a packet of S-04. We'll see how it works!

I wouldn't risk contamination of stirring so often. I might swirl the carboy, but even that might not be required.

comment Modifying flavors during bottling?
When I read "sourness has almost disappeared", I was thinking the bit of aging cleaned-up the sour apple (acetaldehyde) of the 'green' beer.

comment Can the final gravity be multiplied by the ratio of beer to water?
If I HAD more beer! It was quite stupid of me, but I only realized it after I sealed the last bottle. But glad to know the idea in the question is valid. BTW, I do chunk the hydrometer reading with temp into Dave's dreaded calculator to normalize for temperature, and have gently weighted my hydrometer and tested with distilled water.
